Snow Ice Cream

Jennie Duncan
This recipe holds so many memories for me. Snow Ice Cream is the perfect treat for snow days. It's simple to make and only uses 3 simple ingredients. You just need snow, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla.

What kind of snow is best? I use a light more powdery snow for this recipe.
If your snow is more wet and heavy then you might need to use less then 12 cups. You can always add more while mixing.
What should I add to my ice cream? We love topping our ice cream with whipped cream and sprinkles and the kids even added chocolate syrup.
Any of your favorite ice cream toppings will work.
This ice cream will melt quickly so hot fudge would not work well.
Is it safe to eat snow? Snow is generally safe to eat. You want to make sure you are only using pure white snow.
Nothing with color that could have other things in it.
We stay away from snow that is on the soil or the street.  I usually collect fresh snow from a table on my porch.
